The ultrastructural distribution of proteoglycans around capillaries growing in the cornea of the rabbit eye was determined after staining with ruthenium red (RR). Proteoglycans were identified by digesting tissues with glycosaminoglycan-degradative enzymes. Sialoglycoproteins were differentiated from proteoglycans by neuraminidase digestion. The capillary sprouts demonstrated a luminal glycocalyx containing testicular hyaluronidase-sensitive proteoglycans but little or no sialoglycoprotein. At… CONTINUE READING
